There are some great moments but a lot of vocal lapses and a few musical ones as well. Certainly worth hearing and delightful at points but not in the class of others that are just 'on' the whole way through.

Good second set
Not one of the best of the year, but not really bad. Nothing really special in the first set. The vocals are a little sloppier than most of this period, but better than later in the '80's. (Compare with 11/30/80, where the first set is better than the second.)
The second set has more energy and inspiration than the first. There's some nice jamming on I Know You Rider, followed by some hot Jerry work and Bob vocals in Estimated Prophet. Brent weakens the Wheel with some Lite Rock playing. (This would be better if his keyboard were mixed more quietly Truckin' loses momentum when band fumbles. Wharf Rat is somewhat sloppy. Things pick up again Goin' Down the Road.
The sound isn't bad at all. The vocals are a little compressed, but overall very listenable audio.

It's allot like sitting at the board with phones on. Which, is neither good or bad. It gives it kind of a compressed, polished, kind of feel. Sorta' like being in a really small hall or a rehearsal stage. I'll probably export this to an effects processor and give it some more headroom while also preserving the original in deference to the current mix. Great, tight setlist.

Att: All China Cat>Rider fans this is a whopper
This is not a 2 - 5 wih sound issues...
Off the charts definately one fo the best of 1980 along with Springfield and Rochester. There are distortion issues but who cares? Show freeking rocks... LL Rain, Music, Tenn Jed, all steller in first and then China>Rider to open Set II?? Never seen a show yet that did not crush it with a 2nd set opener like that...

This has some sort of weird noise reduction or something strange in the transfer. Noticible during quiet moments especially. May not bother some people, but I don't like it. Very unfortunate, it seems like it has the potential to sound incredible.
The show is good though...

In Memory of Truckin' Dec 27 1980
These 5 shows in Oakland were my 8th through 12th shows ever. I was just starting to get what it was all about. I had been dancing madly during every note of this show, and made my way from the back of the floor to the front lobby, where concrete dust was flying all around, and people were still dancing. Apparently, during Truckin', the energy was so high that a huge block of the tile floor caved in, and there was yellow 'CAUTION' tape to keep people from falling in. The next night there was plywood covering the hole, upon which someone wrote in black marker, "In Memory of Truckin' Dec 27 1980." Thank you for the trip in the way back machine. And thanks for an awesome sounding tape.
